French independent accounting and consulting firm Primexis has joined the Leading Edge Alliance.
Primexis is based in Paris, had turnover of €26 million ($41 million) in its most recent financial year and has more than 280 staff. This would place the Leading Edge Alliance as the 13th largest organisation in the networks and associations section of this year’s International Accounting Bulletin survey of the French accountancy market.
The firm is organised into seven specialist divisions: international business services; real estate and public sector; payroll and HR administration; group consolidation and reporting, interim management and account support; transaction services; and information systems consultancy.
The firm has more than 30 years of experience serving international clients and looks after more than 250 subsidiaries or branches of US, UK and other international companies.
Primexis claims it is the first French firm to achieve Statement on Auditing Standards No 70, Service Organisations Type II certification, the US standard on internal control requirements.
“We are very pleased to enter The Leading Edge Alliance and get the opportunity to build partnerships with its international major members,” Primexis chairman Olivier Touchard said.
“This means Primexis will be able to improve its offering around the world, gain access to new talents and be closer to our subsidiary customers and parent companies abroad.”
